Doctor Taylor, his wife Elizabeth and their teenage daughter Lana go to an isolated hospital in the Brazilean jungle, close to the Amazon river; they are attacked by savages and he sees them kill and eat his wife, and abduct the girl. Taylor manages to get back to civilization, but he needs psychiatric help; only Doctor Ana believes his story about cannibals, and takes the risk of going with him and a few rich people who can pay for a safari in the remote jungle. The cannibals decimate a number of the safari members in a succession of attacks, and only Taylor, the sexy lady doctor, and a photograph, rich the cannibal tribe - only to discover that she is now the wife of the tribe leader, and considered a goddess. The tribe has adopted her as a white goddess. Written by Artemis-9

Jeremy Taylor: Are you Mr Martin?
Mr. Martin: That's me.
Jeremy Taylor: May we sit with you?
Mr. Martin: It's a public place.
Jeremy Taylor: I'm told that you know the Malavi region very well; better than you know the palm of your own hand.
Mr. Martin: No. Leave the palms of my hands out of it. It'd be impossible to know that region in depth.
Ana: Who would know it, then?
Mr. Martin: Only the Gaevis know it well.
Ana: That's just who we're looking for.
Mr. Martin: The Gaevis? Well, in that case, you people better look for somebody else around here.

Quite bad Jess Franco film...
5 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I found the film Cannibals directed by Jess Franco to not be as good as any of the other films he has made. The film is about a Doctor, his wife Elizabeth and their teenage daughter Lana. they go to an isolated hospital in the Brazilean jungle, which is close to the Amazon river. whilst they are there they are attacked by savage cannibals they kill and eat his wife, and they abduct the girl. Dr Taylor manages to get back out of the jungle but he needs psychiatric help no one will believe him about his story of seeing cannibals he manages to find a doctor called Doctor Ana she is the only on who believes his story about the cannibals, so takes the risk of going with him into the jungle. also a few others come along as well The cannibals start to kill a few of the members in attacks. this was quite a poor film to watch .
